Stuff just keeps on turning around and screwing you big time, little to no things seem to work out in your favor, it's just very frustrating.
What to do in those times? Shopping doesn't work, already tried.
Oi shopping isn't working? Sometimes I take a day to myself - sleep in, go downtown, grab a cup of coffee or have a yummy meal and get a pedicure or haircut. I usually walk away feeling a lot better than before - a little self pampering never hurt because hey, you're worth it!
shopping is not work? oh waw, that's depressing, hehehe....... how bout coffee? or...... me have your situation, i play my music instrument.......... or........ maybe ask megs to somewhere out, a lil getaway from your town?
Story of my life lately, Vlad. Stress, stress, stress. My outlet is to come here--seriously! I can understand that it wouldn't be the same for you, tho--you and Megs do all the work, and we have all the fun.
Go to a movie or rent a fun DVD? It would get your mind off things for a couple hours. I think the holidays make everything more difficult--unrealistic expectations and demands on all of us.
